Giants Showcase A Defense of Champions

I know it's only the San Diego Padres, but Damn, the Giants are playing like champions!  Last night's game at AT&T park had the Giants making plays on defense that reminded me of their world series playoff run.  

Another Angel Pagan diving catch and follow-up throw that should be replaying on ESPN at this minute; Pablo Sandoval at first base making an acrobatic, olympian double-play catch of a Brandon Crawford throw, and of course the Brandon Crawford walk-off game winning single.

Yes, the San Francisco Giants are adding up to the sum of all it's parts.  There are all-stars on the team, but every game seems to bring out the regular joe's pushing their game up a notch for a chance to go to the playoffs.  Last night Angel Pagan showed he deserves gold glove status and Brandon Crawford made a strong case for being more than just a regular Joe!

Final Score
Padres 2
Giants 3

- Oakland A's won their sixth straight game last night in Toronto, 7-2

- And just who the heck is Edinson Volquez? Padres pitcher battled Madison Bumgarner to a 2-2 stalemate.
